My Dream Car. Also My best Car
By David in Colorado on


2000 Honda Prelude 2dr Coupe


The most excellent combination of practicality and sports coupe. My car has been a dream for the most part. I have 215,000 miles and limited maintenance. The ignition switch at 80,000 was a recall item. I didn't listen to my mechanic about flushing the tranny at every 60K, and the filter finally clogged at 170,000 miles. Otherwise, I have had no other problems. One nagging issue, is the low tires make driving in snow of more than 3" difficult and the car is very hard on tires. The sound system is incredible and the performance is very titillating for those loving speed. It's a tribute to Honda craftsmanship.

Best Features

Tiptronic transmission. You get your normal P-R-N-D-D2-D1 automatic type of shifter. However on the D gear, the driver can move the shifter to a manual type of shifting. There is no clutch involved, but it allows for downshifting making Mountain passes and on ramps a delight. Helps to stop car

Worst Features

Reintroduce this to the market. It's reliable, practical, sporty, fun. Do something about the tires. Higher tread wall would be great.
